  • I don't brush, because she doesnt have teeth. I do however clean her gums at least once a day. Shes 7 1/2 mo.

  • Yes his two bottom teeth and his gums. Usally once a day after his bath. Oragel makes a cleanser for babys that comes with a neat little brush.

  • Before my son got teeth, I would wipe his mouth out everyday with a wet wash cloth to help prevent thrush, and to keep his gums clean. I want to say around 7 months when he actually started getting teeth I bought a little rubber finger brush with baby toothpaste without floride. He is 14 months now, and I try to do it twice a day. But sometimes only once.
